Discovery 2.0

Highlights of new functionality and new options for libraries in Discovery 2.0 

  • Migration of Requestability (formerly Check Availability) and associated services to the new Relais web platform using Java 1.8.  No parts of Relais D2D will be running in the old Java 1.4.2 environment.

This means that libraries that have been prevented from updating local security certificates because of the old version of Java that was running previously will now be able to update their certificates. 

For example, better handling records that do not include call numbers so that they can be included in the Requestability logic. 

For example, configuration of a specific message and link for electronic resources that are held by other consortium members.

  • For libraries that are using ILLiad for request management,
    • Support for more than five OCLC symbols in the lender string that is sent from Relais
    • Ability to handle OpenURLs to ILLiad that include a proxy
    • In the Discovery UI
      • Option to display the patron’s name and surname, first name only or to hide this information.  The default is to display the patron’s name and surname.
      • Option to hide the My Account link or point to a different url.  The default is to display the My Account link pointing to the Relais Portal - My Account page.
      • Ability to configure the message that displays when no results are found and to configure the links to request a copy or loan. 
      • Enhanced security for passing patron credentials to Discovery.  This includes the option to use a public-key for asymmetric encryption as well as the option to call the Relais Authentication service to generate an ‘aid’ for use in the OpenURL to Discovery.
